The Ottawa Police Service is looking for three men in connection to an armed robbery on Montreal Rd.
It happened around 12:50 p.m. back on February 17 at a marijuana dispensary, about two blocks east of Vanier Pkwy.
Police say one of the suspects jumped a counter and then opened a door for one of the other suspects.
The men demanded cash and drugs.
A struggle ensued between one of the suspects and a victim, while a second victim tried to hide within the store.
According to officers, one of the other two suspects fired a gun -- no one was hit by its bullets.
The victim was then assaulted with a handgun, sustaining serious injuries that later required surgery.
Police believe the suspects fled with some cash and drugs, and were last seen running south on Lajoie St.
The men then got into a dark colored vehicle, similar to a Chrysler Sebring.
The suspects are being described as:
A black man, standing approximately 5'9'' - 5' 10'' (175 cm – 178 cm) and 180 lbs. (82 kg). At the time of the incident, he was wearing a black jacket with red stripes (front and back), dark grey pants, white gloves, white running shoes, a black hooded jacket, and a light blue baseball cap.
